ink for life

And I’ll always
wonder about
what’s swirling
in your mind—
what’s blooming
in your heart,
but I’ll always
be terrified
of not being
able to find
my name
written inside
any of them.
—  ma.c.a // Please, Say Who I Am

My favorite feeling is feeling your lips on mine

But she will
stand up again,
like a phoenix
flying from its ashes,
like a butterfly
that was once
caged on itself.
—  ma.c.a // And she will live again
Let’s be strangers again. Like we never knew each other, as if we’ve never been lovers. Think of me as someone who doesn’t know you personally. Spill out everything that hurts you. Tell me about your heartbreaks and all the things that suffocating you. I’ll listen to all of the things you’ve done in the past not caring if it will change my perspective or not. Tell me, how it hurts. And how much it pains you. As if you’re talking to someone you thought you’ll never see again. As if you knew your secrets will still be safe. Let us go back to our beginnings. Let us walk towards the start. Let us be unknown to each other once more. Maybe we will fall in love with each other after it all.

my brain is never at peace
i never seem to find quietness
i’m always wondering
will i ever be good enough
i’m waiting
waiting for silence to come
